Trio's idea would help diabetics
The girls, Auburn Kelton, Sarah Pearce and Emma Ohlson, came up with a concept that might help diabetics someday: a sensor that would use nanotechnology to read blood sugar levels.
Their idea caught the attention of the local American Diabetes Association office. The three fifth-graders have been invited to give a presentation on their project at the ADA's February meeting and lunch.
"I'm nervously excited," Sarah said about the chance to share their idea with the association and a visiting engineer from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
